'll cover it all from all sides with the president of libya's general national congress mohamed magariaf. u.n. ambassador susan rice, and republican senator john mccain. for analysis we'll look to former u.s. ambassador to israel martin indyk. the president of the council on foreign relations, richard haass. and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. plus we'll talk to the chief washington correspondent of the "times" david sanger. "time" magazine deputy international editor bobby ghosh. and cbs news political director, john dickerson. this is "face the nation" upon captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. with >> good morning again. and here is the latest news from overnight. four american military people have been killed in an attack in southern afghanistan. this happened when at least one afghan police officer opened fire on them at a checkpoint. the state department has ordered all nonessential u.s. embassy personnel to leave tunisia and sudan, and protests against americans continue in at least 20 countries. we're going to start t
happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whet
on the issue. we since learned this administration first thought this uprising in libya was just something that bubbled up from the ground, now they are calling ate terrorist attack. what went wrong there, we needed to get wrong in the first place why weren't you securing the embassy the way you should have been? these are points a republican could make that mitt romney need to make because he knows the press isn't necessarily going to make that case for him. hhe can't make it because he jumped in and said hey this is a very serious issue. but instead he hasn't really come back to it. what an old hand might do is say look you have to prosecute this case against the president in this way, not just let it be. >> i think that was perfectly said and unfortunately for me it was what i wanted to say and i would also add that an old hand on the plane would have said to him, to mr. romney as soon as libya blew, mr. romney went out there and he tried to make some political hay of it an old hand would have said, buddy, when americans come under attack, the first thing you do is say, we are praying
in latin america we have a president that brilliantly dealt with the situation in libya, with the arab spring. we have solid relations with china and russia. we're competitive with both. but we're not going to be like governor romney who says on his first day he's going to start a trade war with china. and our biggest geopolitical foe is russia. just those words as enervating and putting a lot of people nervous. i think what this president has done is restored our prestige abroad. we're leaders but we're collaborating with other nations. nato, europe, we're all tackling this economic crisis internationally together. outreach to the third world, to africa, asia, latin america. the president is not running overseas, but everywhere you go, all around the world-- and i travel a lot-- the international community wants to see this president re-elected. obviously, we've got to do it here. >> schieffer: all right, well, i want to thank all of you. >> thank you, bob. >> schieffer: we'll be back to you, and we'll be right back with more from the site of the democratic convention. so stay with us
that now? well, i think in the short term, there's a rift for romney. in the long term with libya and egypt and all of these protestes, there's a long-term problem for the property. what mitt romney could have done when he had that press conference was come out and say we have a tradition in this country where in the middle of campaigns we don't attack the chief executive. we are all one and i'm going to let the president handle this. he didn't do that. he, as you said, jumped in the moment, inserted himself, made a large argument, which the president has been weak and there are specifics in this case but it attaches to a longer and bigger critique of the president. that's a big risk because he's not only challenging tradition by speak out, but he's also challenging public opinion. the country, based on polling, is not in an adventuresome mood. they are not in a strong horse mood based on 11 years of war, and just where they are right now. so mitt romney has to make a strong case here. he didn't really continue making that case. so that's the challenge for him. the challenge for the super t
is coming. nobel prize winning president -- i said liberia, i meant libya, and the nobel prize winning president of liberia is coming and a lot of other world leaders from around the world. >> mike duke will be on the opening, president of wal-mart along with the head of the world bank and secretary-general of the u.n. because of at least among american companies wal-mart is the number one user of solar power in america and they use quite a bit of wind too, so it is very interesting that they have, a buying part of their business strategy and their stock has been up and growth is good, it is cutting down on their traditional energy use. >> schieffer: i want to wish you the best of luck with this but also want to talk to you a little bit about american politics. you have clearly were the star of the detrimentally convention. you probably made the best case that anybody could probably make for your side. let's just talk about what is going on in the campaign right now. the buying topic this week was this video that mitt romney, that came to light, which he more or less said he was writin
